The Shiba Inu ecosystem's very own "SHIB: The Metaverse" seems to be progressing quite well, with its developers recently dropping an information dump, allowing fans to get a glimpse of what they are currently working on.

The latest update is a sneak peek at the concept art of one of the Hubs in the metaverse, dubbed the WAGMI temple. The concept art, as explained by the developers, features a "landscape showcasing zen-inspired architecture, plant life, sculptures and water features designed to create a calming environment for SHIB: The Metaverse."

Concept-wise, the Hub boasts of "a zen-like realm with calming sensations, meditation, natural beauty, and spiritual connections to the world."

The hub's concept was inspired by the architecture and designs of various temples and landmarks, including the "Byodo-In Temple in Ahuimanu, Hawaii, Temple of Heaven in Beijing, Gawdawpalin Temple in Bagan, Myanmar, Swaminarayan Akshardham in New Delhi, Nan Hua Temple in Bronkhorstspruit, South Africa and the Kinkaku-ji Temple in Kyoto, Japan."

The team also announced the Fireside Chats, which will be available for community feedback "throughout portions of the Metaverse creative process."

This will allow developers to "fully understand" the community, and address their "questions, ideas, inspiration, or concerns directly."

The initiative will be hosted on the official Shibatoken Discord, and will be recorded to "deliver a true inspiring and easy-going process." The team also shared its plan of hosting more of these Fireside Chats on other platforms in the future.

The community, especially the Shib Army, has high expectations from "SHIB: The Metaverse," since it hired the world's leading visualization studio, The Third Floor (TTF), to take charge of the metaverse's development.

In a blog post, Shiba Inu said TTF will "use its skills in visual development and storytelling to help define and develop virtual environments, buildings and landmarks for a true Shiba-inspired universe while developing a marketplace to inform final environment production."

The Shiba Inu team also noted how TTF's onboarding on "SHIB: The Metaverse" will help realize the vision of the developers.

"TTF's rapid prototyping, powered by real-time processing and creative iteration in Unreal Engine, will take ideas and "looks" quickly from concept into 3D prototypes," the blog post said.

So far, "SHIB: The Metaverse" has already conducted its Shiba Inu Land Sale in June, and has raised more than $20 million. It has also sold 19,743 pieces of land in the metaverse out of the initial 32,000.

"SHIB: The Metaverse" is just one of the many upcoming initiatives of the Shiba Inu team. As of 3.45 a.m. ET on Monday, SHIB, the native token of Shiba Inu, was trading up 0.99% at $0.00001243 with a 24-hour volume of $584,697,722, based on the latest data from CoinMarketCap.
